OAT Academies: Updates

Ormiston Victory Academy Christmas Tuck shop 

Over the Christmas period staff, parents and the local community came together to open Ormiston Victory Academy’s Christmas tuck shop for the fourth year.

Donations came from across the community in Norwich where students bought donated goods through their “Victory Visa” rewards scheme, where they gained points from teachers for hard work academically, and kindness and compassion.

Students bought toys, games, books, clothes as well as other items and as a part of the academy’s #WeWill programme students are also helped run the shop and work with members of the community who gave donations.

Ormiston Forge Academy Hollywood visit

A former Ormiston Forge Academy student, Matthew Hill, recently visited the academy to discuss his work in the film industry as a concept designer with year 9 and year 10 students.

Matthew has worked on Netflix productions and films the Batman, Mission Impossible 7 and is currently on Mission Impossible 8. Matthew held a workshop with students to explore arts career routes and offered his story to students on how to get involved in careers in the arts industry.

Matthew is also featured in OAT Futures, a website to support OAT students on their future careers choices featuring a careers portal.
